"[The PMB mics] were made by a now defunct German company, about 15 years ago. The mic's are self powered (AA batt in each), the 2 sets of capsules that I have are the shotguns (about 12" length) and the small capsules which have a figure-8 pick-up pattern. Balanced output at the mic. They were owned by a speaker designer from England. Before working w/ Home audio, he worked w/ pro sound. He did lots of recording @ small to large venues in the UK. He recorded for broadcasts. He stuck w/ these mic.s through the end of his recording days."

Also, during Watchtower the entire PA shut off for what seemed like a few seconds but probably 1-2 seconds.
This was a fun week of taping with Dave.

I was living in Boston during this period. I had tickets to all of the Boston shows during these six night runs over a few years. I used to sit between Steve Morse, who was the Boston Globe’s music critic (I used to help him with the names of the songs LOL) and Senator John Kerry who has amazing hair but wasn’t really there for the music (he was there to go backstage and talk to the band about various causes).
Anyway, despite many years of GD shows, bizarrely, I had never seen BIODTL or GDTRFB performed. Neither song was particularly rare, but I had never seen them.
In a way that only the Universe conspiring with the GD can muster, the boys played both songs this night... at my last ever GD show.
I love the GD. Gave me so much joy for so long. That moment when the house lights go dark as they would take the stage... unreproducible. Thank you.
Subject: A good night
Subject: Such mixed feelings.
Subject: If we only knew.....
what we finally all know now.
I still have a few of those heavy duty plastic cups they were serving beer in on that final run in Boston.
Subject: Follow up
Subject: THANK YOU for A (real good time)
Subject: The Last Night in the Boston Garden.
Get this tape if you don't have it, I think it's decent and has some nice really moments and the recording is very good.
this is the last time the Grateful Dead ever play this very historic room and in classic Grateful Dead fashion, end the run with Brokedown Palace, Jerry jumbles the words a bit, but oh well we can all deal with that once in a while..During his quick little solo I remember staring up at the ceiling of the Garden looking at all the banners and feeling bittersweet that the run was over.. They never set foot in Boston Garden again.
We had tickets in hand for the fall 95 tour which was slated for a run here in the Garden, but we all know the sad end of that story..
Subject: Better than I remember
Subject: not bad
Subject: GREAT SHOW!!!!!!!!!
We knew it was gonna be a good night when Jerry forgot the lyrics to Touch Of Grey, later in the set came a chooglin version of Loose Lucy, I was blown away. Second set opens with Box Of Rain!!! into a friggin incredible Shakedown, Phil bombs made the balcony shake.I don't really remember much else (kind bud). Get this one
Subject: Set list...
Subject: good show
Subject: GREAT SHOW AND GOOD SOURCE!
Excellent show. The crowd was really into it, and the Shakedown is truely worth the entire download alone. ENJOY!
